Trainer update!

Thank you to everyone who offered advice and support on my last post! So today I found a 'local' running sports shop who sold me a pair of karrimor tempo trainers for £30....bonus! They said to try them and see how I get on as like most of you guys have said, you won't really know what suits until you actually start!!

I plan to mentally prepare myself for run number one tomorrow being as I now have a pair of trainers....oh and some comfy socks!!

Wish me luck 😬

  • Good luck...keep it slow and steady and enjoy :)

  • My wife bought the Karrimor Tempo's from Sportsdirect, and likes them a lot and highly recommended, regardless of what's been said about Sportsdirect, if there's a potential bargain and it suits the buyer then go for it..😊

  • Not sure of your gender but the ladies do say a sports bra is essential kit.

    Good luck, keep us posted.

  • Oh yes, lol. I have one for the gym. I'd say most women should invest in one for running, regardless of size. Booby's need support, lol.

  • Well done Lisa, I rate the Karrimor range, I think it's a good all rounder. I have the Duma 2 Karrimor, but after doing a gait analysis, my choice went with a pair of Asia's. They are so comfy and support my weak point on left foot which is my arch, falls slightly inward. Good luck for when you start
